Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: '73 or '74?

I use to find it very easy to answer my fav year question, and the answer was always '74.

I haven't changed me answer but now arrive at it more difficultly as I've discovered so many gems in '72 and '73. The Pigpen factor still present in '72 is hard to ignore as well.

As for why '74 is stil tops for me one need only listen to some of my favs such as 6/18/74, 6/23/74 , The combo DP featuring Providence and Boston, and the whole Winterland retirement run.

No offence to 76+77 but IMHO they never again matched what they were in the retirement year.
